Different kind of cart ride. Shit.

Per ESPN, Ben Roethlisberger was carted off the practice field today when Max Stark was bull-rushed by James Harrison and fell on the first string quarterback.

Begin lighting candles, chanting mantras, eating tea leaves or WHATEVER THE HELL to make sure this is just a mild sprain. Jesus.

ESPN is just being a bunch of douche bags as per the norm. Every hour today they've mentioned the injury roughly 15 times, and then mention in a five second blurb that he was walking around just fine later that night when he was coaching some softball game the Steelers play every year. They're reporting that he's making the trip to Washington, but probably won't play as a precautionary measure. Don't fret.

Yes, I realize The WWL is prone to sensationalism. It was just a helluva thing to wake up to.

It just sucks that Ben won't play a snap in the game. I was really looking forward to seeing the champs live.

At least he should be healthy for the reg season.

Same here Tom. I'm just going to drink until Dennis Dixon looks like Roethlisberger. By that time FedEx should look like only the 25th worst stadium in football, maybe the 18th.
